Helping Aging Parents Stay At Home
When your parents get older, you may start to worry about their overall well-being. They might wish to remain at home, but will they be safe and comfortable? These are questions that Visiting Angels® Novi can address. In addition to our in home care services, we help seniors and families prepare for aging in place.
You may not know where to start or what's needed, and that can often be overwhelming. Let's take a closer look at how you can support your family member.
How To Support A Family Member With Aging in Novi
Aging in place gives seniors the opportunity to live life on their terms for as long as possible. You may be concerned about their health or well-being, or what this might look like on a day-to-day basis. If you want to help a family member who's aging in place, here's how to get started:
- Talk with them. First and foremost, it helps to sit down and have a frank conversation about the future. How long do they wish to remain at home? Do they want to downsize or stay in their current house? What are some of the concerns they have? What do they plan to do if they lose mobility or have other difficulties? Talking these things through can help everyone plan for the future more effectively.
- Think about safety. Depending on your parent's age and condition, different safety features can offer lots of impact. Extra lighting is almost always a good idea. Non-slip rugs, safety railings, and pull-out storage can help to prevent falls and other injuries. Make sure their vision, balance, hearing, and overall mobility have been evaluated recently by their health team, too.
- Consider additional help. Is there someone in Novi who can check in on your loved one on a regular basis? Ideally, it's someone who can help with errands, keep an eye out for any changes in conditions, and provide social contact. These are areas where professional in home care services can make a big difference. For seniors living alone, regular caregiver visits can make aging in place safer and easier.
